Zappa Plays Zappa to Celebrate Roxy & Elsewhere with Tour

Zappa Plays Zappa will embark on a tour celebrating the classic Frank Zappa album Roxy & Elsewhere. The band, led by Frank’s son Dweezil Zappa, will make their way across the U.S. and Canada this fall and winter, where they will perform the classic album in its entirety at each stop. Following the tour, Zappa Plays Zappa will pay homage to the album by performing at Hollywood’s Roxy Theatre on the 40th anniversary, to the day, of Frank Zappa’s epic series of concerts that produced Roxy & Elsewhere. A full list of confirmed dates can be found below.

As previously reported, the footage and recordings from Frank Zappa’s legendary Roxy run are being compiled into a concert film called The Roxy Performances. A trailer for the film was released back in 2003, but so far no full movie has been released.
